Price Reporting of Forest Products to Nonindustrial Private Forest Landowners
Abstract:Of late, price reporting has been proposed to make more information available to the nonindustrial private forest landowners. Proponents say reporting stimulates owners' participation in the timber economy by increasing their awareness of potential returns and their negotiating confidence. A 1980 nationwide survey found only 14 states with regular price reporting services. In order to expand price reporting, problems of periodicity, sponsorship, data sources, and distribution must be dealt with.
